Steinberg Download assistent looks..funny

Hi…I recently bought CUbase Elements 11…Everything looks and work fine for now…the only thing I do not understand why my Steiberg Download Assitent look wired…I have some incomprehensible font…looks like this…

…what can be problem.Thanks for help

Maybe your localization is not so well supported…?!

Hi…I do not use any localization.I am using english version…It is only place with " HIEROGLYPHICS"…if you look closely everyhing else looks good…

…maybe some system font is corrupted or something…

lel its a caesar cipher with a right rotation of 2 (every letter is replaced by the one after next in the alphabet) which is really weird.
Sorry I have no idea what’s causing it though, I only can tell you that Ewdcug means Cubase and Pwgpfq is Nuendo.

You could use something like Process Monitor - Sysinternals | Microsoft Learn to check if and which system font files the installer accesses and try to reinstall them. That’s a bit far fetched though, probably its just a cubase bug you can’t do much about.



Yes, so weird.
It’s like the unicode alphabet was being recalculated, heh. Can’t wait for Ewdcug 1.3! :woozy_face: :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

ehehehe I actually kind of like it :sunglasses:

I have the exact same problem now. Anybody with a solution?

I have the same problem too :confused: A year later and Cubase team hasn’t even tried to address this ?!?!

Am I supposed to open a support ticket for an error message that is in gibberish??

It says that the download cannot be started because you do no have write permission to that folder.

Hmmm that actually helps a lot, I ran “steinberg download assistant” as administrator and was able to proceed. Not sure how I wouldn’t have access to my own downloads folder. Thanks though! (characters/fonts are still messed up though)

edit: I noticed another program, VUZE has the same problem that Cubase does (weird wonky font), so I suspect it is just Cubase doing a use-default-font thing and windows having some unusual, problematic settings.
